2. Our unique expertise

Macaroni KID Robinson - Pittsburgh West has been a consistent, trusted publication among parents in our area since 2010. Not only do we have a long standing, excellent connection with local readers, but Macaroni KID Robinson is published by a local mom of 2 who grew up in the South Hills of Pittsburgh and now lives in and plays in the Pittsburgh West area. Being an expert in the community was something I loved before publishing for Macaroni KID. That passion coupled with my background in business, love for creation and attention to small details makes this a job that I can only feel was designed for me. 

3. Our readers

Macaroni KID Pittsburgh West readers are up on everything happening in our community. Their kids got their first library card at six. They show up (on time) for school concerts. They are soccer parents, working parents, and stay-at-home parents. They are passionate about supporting local businesses in our community. Macaroni KID readers are THE ideal audience for local businesses that want to connect with moms and families in our area.

Jen R., Marketing Director - Snapology 

  • I know you just recently took over this site and I want you to know that you are doing such an amazing job. As a franchise, Snapology deals with tons of Macaroni kid locations across the country so I know that the success of these sites and partnerships can vary greatly depending on the owner of the site. I have never gotten a campaign report - especially unprompted! This is really really great. I can tell you that of the many locations we have that partner with sites like yours, you are one of the best owners I have seen. I look forward to partnering again in the future.
